Hi Lisi and Lanzen,

I will try to reply to all your last mails here.

>  Let's see. You have one address and that is spwhite at sunrise.ch. From 
this  you get a pop_example.sunrise,ch and smtp_example.sunrise,ch.
> Is this correct?
Not quite,
 from spwhite at sunrise.ch I got pop.gmail.com and smtp.gmail.com
>Do you mean sunrise=GMail?
Yes and no. 
When I do the "Login Sunrise Mail" I reach a page
It just looks like Gmail but says Sunrise on the top.
From your next mail you figured some of that out.

Later you replied to Lisi

Well, more or less.

It appears the server requires authentication.

I had those for smtp.gmail.com but not for smtp.sunrise.ch
( found this smtp under "Free SMTP Server List" while googling)

When was that already?    ;-)

> Have you given up on using GMail?
No, I just subscribed to a (real) GMail account (peregrine.white at gmail.com)
and set the filter on my sunrise box to forward there the mails from  
spwhite at freesurf.ch  to  kubuntu-users at lists.ubuntu.com.
*I will try in a few minutes to see if it works*

Perhaps you already figured it out from Lanzen reply

Indeed I just needed another email address as a workaround, my first idea was 
to do it from my ISP but I was simpler to take it from Gmail.

I Kmail I configured the second pop account from Gmail, hope I've got it 
right, and send...

Thanks again		Perry
